By using Aarhus University’s wireless network, you agree to comply with the rules in AU’s information security guide.
The university reserves the right to carry out scans of the net with a view to determine which computers are connected to it, and which services they use.
You must ensure that your computer has updated anti-virus software, and that all updates to the operating system and other security updates are installed.
You must not do anything that interferes with the operation of the wireless network. This includes using an unreasonably large percentage of the available bandwidth.
It is illegal and against university rules to copy or share films, music, software or other copyrighted material without the permission of the copyright holder.
